We never believed it could happen, snow at the end of May! I was concerned about whether it would be to hot to do the Camino in May, I never dreamed we'd be walking in wild, wild weather. I did think about Bill who we met yesterday and his promise to walk bare foot if it snowed.
We walked about 18.5km today, leaving about 8:30am and …

... but Amr had found it yesterday, so we set off correctly, despite signs saying that this was the "difficult" route, and even local people pointing us in the other direction. Well the "difficult" path wasn't just more interesting than the road, it was spectacular!! We were joined by an American woman, Marlene, who was wondering which was the best way, and up we headed.
